    Hi! The Vitpilen is my first bike so I don’t know so much about bikes in general! Now to my question: should there be some movement in the rare calliper when i push it back and forth in the wheels direction? The one on the front wheel is rock solid!

    There should NOT be any movement from the caliper.

    I couldn’t find the torque specs in the manual so if you happen to have a torque wrench available perhaps you can tighten it down to the front specs.

    If not, just tighten it down as best you can and head straight to your dealer or a mechanic.

    Wow. Will have to add this to the list of things that people have found wrong with their rear brakes.

    is It really so that the rare calliper should be rock solid? I’m trying to figure it out but it is mounted on rubber suspension that means it can’t be rock solid?! When I pulled the black rubber thing ( in the right red circle) it slider in the hole so I could see movement from the other rubber thing (in the left red circle). This must mean that the rubber is al the way in the hole and since the calliper is mounted like this there will be some “suspension” feeling?????

    It’s totally normal, the rear brake is always moving a little bit !

    If you press the brake pedal you will see that it’s doesn’t move anymore

    Because it’s a floating disk. (Sorry it’s hard for me to explain this in English).

    You shouldn’t worry about it.
